secret negotiator of the israel-jordan peace treaty. it is easy to forget that role. but it is important to understand how crucial that peace treaty is now as the area is so volatile. there's a bit of good news today -- the new egyptian ambassador to israel came today to announce that israel -- that egypt will abide by the peace treaty -- will abide by the peace treaty with israel. but we have relied on the peace treaty, israel has relied on it. and so have we, the peace treaty with jordan, for many years. and efraim halevy deserves enormous credit for that. as haleh said, we watched developments in the middle east very closely here. the president of the yemen came a few weeks ago to speak about a way forward for his country, which is trying hard to become a strong ally in the fight against terrorism, and has huge economic challenges. we just held the second of three meetings on how women are fairing in the arab awakening. last month, former deputy secretary of state and ambassador, tom pickering, and other national security officials, military officers and experts with decades of experi
friend jim is away this week, so we are happy to welcome back jordan lieberman. good to see you again. so let's talk about it. the day is here. peter, i'll start with you. what's the feeling going into this debate? >> i think there's a lot of anxiety, allison. these things are very tense. i'm not sure we're going to see lincoln/douglas here tonight. this is a fairly loose format and it allows both candidates some time to go into longer answers and explain things. but as you point out, especially with president obama, i think they're trying to shorten his answers, keep them pointed and i think that they're ready for a pretty tough onslaught from romney. romney knows he has to prove something, and he's going to come at the president, i think fairly hard. but i think this president gives as good as he gets. i think it will be a strong back and forth. >> jordan, what do you think? >> i think peter and i can agree mitt romney is probably losing. that means barack obama has everything to lose tonight if he doesn't do perfectly well. he's not the best debater out there. it's mostly his inspirati

ties with the sunni alignment of the sunni gulf states, egypt and jordan and the shia group of iran's syria and hezbollah was not easy especially as tension rose between the two groups. this was to be increasingly clear with the onset of the arab spring. when you look initially at russian concerns in the arab spring, it can spread to russia was efforts on the same problems as the arab states, autocratic government, widespread corruption and rising prices and indeed democracy demonstrators were shouting the revolutionary train stopped at the station in cairo, next stop moscow. the second concern, islam is my takeover and in a ending chaos and further inspire the islamists and north caucasus and increasingly and khe sanh as well. number three is oil and gas investments in the middle east could be jeopardized as well as the business and arms sales deals and number four when libya occurred, the russians i think that the major lesson purgative stained on the u.n. security council vote in the no-fly zone in bolivia thereby supporting the arab consensus and continuing the widened russian p

such as saudi arabia, uae and jordan, and in 2008 he added libya to the expanding arc of activity. putin's goals were fourfold. number one, demonstrate russia was again a major power in the middle east and the world. number two, gain -- for projects while selling sophisticated products like nuclear reactors and railway systems. number three, as the cost and difficulty of extracting russian oil and natural gas grew to gain joint ventures in oil and natural gas extraction with countries like saudi arabia, iran, uae, libya and iraq. and number four and certainly very important, to prevent the arab states from aiding the islamic resistance movements in the north caucuses that were beginning to spread through the rest of russia. but keeping good ties with the sunni alignment in egypt and jordan and the shia group of hezbollah was not easy, especially as tensions rose between the two groups. this was to be increasingly clear with the onset of the arab spring. now, when you look initially at russian concerns with the arab spring, a, it could spread to russia which suffered some of the same problems as
there are upheavals in places like jordan, bahrain or even saudi arabia. so i'm not sure we have the luxury of consistency. i think what both of them were saying was that the middle east is extraordinarily complex. governor romney said two interesting things i thought. one is that what the united states did in iraq and afghanistan cannot be a template for the future. thed idea we're going to continue to send hundreds of thousands of americans to remake other societies, that's clearly a nonstarter. and then he said -- i think his phrase was -- we can't kill ourselves out of this mess. there has to be something else dealing with extremism and the muslim and arab world other than simply traditional counterterrorism and drone attacks. there has to be something larger to try to encourage the evolution of these societies so essentially young men don't make the career choice of becoming terrorists. i think that's a big idea. it's easier to articulate than implement it but i think again to me it's a welcome add toyings to the debate. >> woodruff: what about those two points, nick burns and what did
of jordan last month, we discussed the importance of continuing reforms to move his country toward more democracy and prosperity. so in all of these placings, and many others, the united states is helping the people of those nations chart their own destinies and realize the full measure of their own human dignity. dignity is a word that means many things to different people in cultures. but it does speak to something universal in all of us, as one egyptian observed in the wake of the country's revolution, freedom and dignity are more important than food and water when you eat in humiliation, you can't taste the food. but dignity does not come from avenging perceived insult especially with violence that can never be justified. it comes from taking responsibility for one's self and community. if you look around the world today, those countries focus on fostering growth ran grievance are pulling ahead. building schools instead of burning them, investment in the peoples' creativity not encouraging their rage. empowering women not excluding them. opening their economies and societies to more

the kings academy, the idea was born out of king abdullah of jordan's own experience of boarding school here in the u.s. few thought a private coed boarding school in the heart of the middle east could succeed a few years after it opened its doors, the school is thriving, growing and attracting some of the region's best and brightest students. in a region steeped in conservative tradition, a modern laboratory of learning is breaking new ground. >> 167. >> reporter: where boys and girls study together, play side by side and can even use dance to express themselves freely. this is not your typical middle eastern school. instead, it's one preparing students for whatever life's punches come their way. and to bring a new vision to a region that's been mar roomed into turmoil for generations. it was king abdullah's experience at deerfield college in massachusetts that inspired this model academy. >> independence of thought. the ability to reason critically. respect for different points of view. those are the intellectual values that we value here. >> reporter: the school's mission is to bridge the
, threatening turkey, jordan, iraq. more and more militants are coming in who are not syrians who are taking over what was originally a much more pluralist liberal opposition. people are predicting up to a ten-year civil war. this is a humanitarian disaster. it is horrific morally and devastating to us strategically. we should -- the united states should act with the countries in the region to create a no-fly zone to protect people. there are lots of risks but the risks to nonaction are far, far greater. americans don't want to hear it. >> i will take a lot of persuading on the no-fly zone to convince me. david court wright. >> there is no plan for ending the war in afghanistan. the president says we'll be out by -- biden says yes for sure. they're planning to keep lots of troops there. the more important thing is how are we actually going to end the war in such a manner to prevent the killing from continuing? how do we work with the people of afghanistan so get a more accountable representative government that isn't just warlords and isn't taken over by the taliban? we need to be engaged in
in the middle east which has deep implication for jordan, for turkey, israel, our great ally and friend and you hear none of that sensitivity from mitt romney. it's a complicated world out there and we need a president who understands those complications and has the experience of making decisions about them. >> final comment? >> this is the most inexperienced candidate for president and vice president together. >> a one term governor with no foreign policy experience. >> one term governor and congressman that's been dealing with the budget. neither of whom have ever made a real decision about sending troops into war or about going into war or have gone into war themselves. >> i have to ask you a question where i understand -- >> you just heard -- i don't know if that was a loose cable or something else but we just lost the tail end of that interview there. it was a live interview between lawrence o'donnell and john kerry. there has been a lot of discussion about if hillary clinton steps down, whether john kerry would be positioned to be a secretary of state. we're going to go live to chris matt
, still very dangerous. we're supporting monarchies in saudi arabia and jordan yet, but at the same time talking about democracies. if you spend any time in that region at all, first thing happens when you get off an airplane is some young arab will come up to you and say, i love america, you only support israel. so it's very hard to get traction in that part of the world when it comes to having an influence on them. >> before i get to a back and forth last night that resinated with either side depending on who you were supporting, what was your take away overall? >> well, barack obama clearly outmatched mitt romney on substance. no doubt about that. i also noticed a couple of minutes in, mitt romney was striking the right tone. the second debate his tone was all wrong for the first 20 minutes, 30 minutes, he was combative like he was in the republican primary. and while that worked well against rick perry, and newt gingrich and very well against primary opponents herman cain, it doesn't work well against the sitting president of the united states. last night his tone was right. he wasn'
of weapons that they need are the saudis and from others through jordan and others and the supply sources that they are ref receiving. so there was, there is a sense that there they are not yet getting the kinds of capabilities to go after aircraft in particular. they want shoulder fired antiaircraft weapons thats could go after syrian, the syrian airports which has been one of the important instruments of repression and one at which the small arms that free syrian army has are not appropriate again but i think this notion of that there are reports, there have been reports that the cia is working with turkish intelligence to insure that some of the weapons that are crossing from the turkish side of the border at least are not reaching the al qaeda and other jihaddist forces but it is a very difficult game. and as david's own story and piece suggest that's the pourous border. there had been before the conflict. there was vis-a-vis travel. many sir yips came to turkey to go shopping regularly and more modern malls and attract the stores there, so it is, and it remans a fairly pourous border

, as one of the turning points in al qaeda's fortress was the attack on america in jordan in 2005, which killed almost entirely jordanians. lack of widespread coverage in the arab world. so i think in iraq people saw what al qaeda like regime would impose on the population. i think i ran this quite a lot of understanding of this. >> troop. i think about a month after that people were very upset. i mean, colleagues took out full-page ads in the papers announcing the attacks. it is a real backlash against that. but she see a lot of that appeared in a country where an attack is carried out, people usually supported tax outside their country. >> to talk about what happened in benghazi after the attack. >> and ghazi -- libya is very different because they are very supportive of the west for what they did in overthrowing gadhafi as opposed to other countries, where no one asked for american aid and got military support. but the point is i used to live in the admin. and in yemen, people were very supportive of attacks against the american military and american civilians. they were supportive of
